Building bridges


Our Building Bridges program is a specially designed program that ‘builds bridges’ between people and supports new and old comers in finding a home outside of home, while at the same time helping Germans get to know their new neighbours in a more transparent and positive way.

We do this by connecting a German national with an old comer who together form a team and work on supporting a new comer in starting a new life in Germany.

The teams then meet on a weekly basis to do an activity of their choice. In addition to that, we organise group meetings twice a month to bring the different teams together. These meetings include picnics, cooking together, going to musical events, team building events, amongst others.
